Using the skills of two local painters, Ketut Suta and Lucky, Adi presents 60 copies of famous paintings of the 20th Century. The show is a whirlwind trip through the History of 20th Century Art, and it presents copies of works of artists as diverse as Marc Chagall, Giorgio de Chirico, Wassily Kandinsky, Roy Lichtenstein, David Hockney and Willem de Kooning.

Adi cites an exhibition by the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in 2004, when over two hundred paintings from the 19th and 20th Century came from New York to Berlin, as having a great impact on his artistic life, and acting as the catalyst for his ‘Masterpieces’ exhibition. “It was like meeting old friends”, Adi says of the MOMA exhibition, “exchanging all the latest information and deepening friendships. The show was a never ending festival of visual sensations, clever thoughts and strongfeelings”.

Adi also says: “Long before the MOMA show in Berlin I collected big-sized prints and reproductions of original paintings. I bought masses of Art books and subscribed to Art Periodicals. The wish to collect Art, to be surrounded by Art, reached much further back than the MOMA exhibition, but, this show did give me an idea how it could be possible to set up my own collection. After coming toUbud, and meeting local artists who were doing good copies, Adi’s project of setting up a collection of Masterpieces of the 20th Century was initiated and finally brought to an enjoyable end.”.
